Galatians 1:7

Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

Cornelius a Lapide

AD 1637
Which is not another. S. Jerome and Ephrem omit another, and interpret the clause: "You transfer yourselves to another Gospel, which indeed is no Gospel." The meaning of the received text is "You transfer yourselves to another Gospel, which still is not another; for there is no other true Gospel save that which I have preached unto you." To which Ephrem adds: "But as they are, so is it." As their teachers are apostates, Judaisers, deceitful liars, so is their Gospel heretical, Judaising, deceitful, and false.

We assert, therefore, that, although a thousand Gospels were written, if the contents of all were the same, they would still be one, and their unity no wise infringed by the number of writers. So, on the other hand, if there were one writer only, but he were to contradict himself, the unity of the things written would be destroyed. For the oneness of a work depends not on the numbe...

John of Damascus

AD 749

Tertullian of Carthage

AD 220
The Creator, that they should seem to "be removed to another gospel "simply when they return again to the Creator. When he adds, too, the words, "which is not another". two gods; and the apostle made a great mistake when he said that "there is not another "gospel,
